    Does anyone still run the defragment programme?
    I used to but cant say I can remember now the last time I did.
    I suppose with the vast memory amd power that the pc has compared to a while back the need is not there as much as it used to be.

    I don't, however I would say that it can do alot of good for your drive and how data is accessed. It's probably worth it if you can be bothered :p

    I used to be a regular defragger on Windows, but haven't felt the need since I changed to Mac. It was usually a desperate attempt to make Windows run faster!

    I see no difference when I do it. I guess when your computer gets full that's when you do it

    Me too, I can't remember the last time I did it but I don't think I need to defrag as often as I used to now that I'm using CCleaner

    Of course I do, why wouldn't I?

    Once your files get too fragmented, you can open one picture, and it will be a different file. Too many fragmented files is very, very bad.

    Right, the memory is cheap today but hard disk is still getting fragment. So, a routine defragment is still in need. :xyes:
